Well was in Gainesville in the early am and talked the wife into making a run to Tampa, and glad we did. We got there on a day where they were doing a raffle on the Barrel aged RIS, we entered but did not get lucky, anyway was crowded to the max, lol good times
Its your standard corner micro brewery and tasting room. Since I can compare the two BBC and CCB, We have to say that CCB comes out on top here also.
The bar is 90 degrees to the entrance, the restrooms are in the warehouse/brewery area, so its a hot trip trip back and forth. No smoking inside is great. The bar is nice, new of course and had about 20 chairs yesterday. Very friendly folks who actually introduced themselves!!. They had a large ratebeer crowd and a few BA folks all were very friendly. We got lucky as they had a cask of the 110k+OT Batch #3 so that was an early treat. so it s was a wild day. The beer list had 2 barrel aged RIS, in sniffer's, and you could buy 4 beers in bomber, the only beer that was hard to drink was the Gruit. which even they admitted required an open mind, I drank it and it was weird but not that terrible.
Anyway the got no food but the let you go get pizza and they usually have open tables and a less crowded Saturday but hey we love it when its crazy had a great time too bad we had to drive all the way back to Jax.
Beer list was nice, not for your average BMC drinker, yea it ran off the non craft lovers.

The selection at this location is top notch...a lot of brews that they've experimented. Check out the site for the updated draft list. You can also get growlers filled to-go along with swag. The bartenders are super nice and helpful. I would suggest if you are in the area or thinking of coming this place is a MUST!
